Where are the jobs?

The Azim Premji University report that at least 50 lakh Indian men lost their jobs between 2016 and 2018, after the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes, confirms the serious crisis on the jobs front. The study s authors said the figures would be much higher if women were included, and even discussed the quality of jobs being created. It may be recalled that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said even selling pakodas was a job. The university s findings should cause sleepless nights for Mr Modi, who had promised two crore jobs annually in 2014, which means over eight crore jobs should have been created by 2019. Instead, according to Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant, a measly 7.8 million jobs were created. It s little wonder that Mr Modi tried in vain to suppress the National Sample Survey report that had placed unemployment at 6.3 per cent, the highest since 1972.
